Marian's Hunting Stories, etc., etc., etc...
Stories of my hunting experiences with family, friends or whatever else I want to blog about.

A Dixie Lady Deer Hunter

Article by Fred Messina, editor of "On Target Outdoors" from The Vicksburg Evening Post on Friday, January 19, 1990. Photo by Bob Phillips.

Bob Phillips came up the other day with a photo of his wife Marian and a deer she got on Brown's Point New Years Eve. The deer was an 8-point with 16 inches of inside spread that weighed in at 190 pounds. A nice trophy in anyone's book. However, the tale Bob told is that this was Marian's fourth deer this year and he claimed that he would have done better than he did if he had not spent so much time hauling Marian's deer out of the woods. Come off it, Bob. We all know who the hunter was.

Altruism At Its Best

My friend Dennis sent me these incredible pictures a few weeks ago that was taken January 2009 in Comox, B.C., Vancouver Island. The weather there was so cold that the bald eagles were cruising over houses looking for helpless cats to make a quick meal. Some kind souls decided to feed the eagles at Goose Spit so they would survive the cold spell. Here's what happened in front of someones home.

A beautiful morning feeding the Eagles.

Eagles fighting for the fish.

No zoom lens here...pretty close.

Here are the men who were feeding them...pretty amazing to get this close! It was not long ago, that the American Bald Eagle was an endangered species in our great wild outdoors!
